New York, NY – (NewMediaWire) – August 11, 2022 – FUND THE PLANET, an environmental sustainability-focused blockchain company, is announcing the acquisition of 1,261 acres (5.1 square kilometers) of rainforest real estate for its upcoming NFT (Non-Fungible Tokens) collection of Rainforest Tokens. Focused on helping organizations and consumers achieve their ESG goals and compensate for their negative environmental impacts. FUND THE PLANET is securing and preserving rainforest ecosystems while providing incentives, transparency, and rewards for rainforest token holders. Their mission is creating a fast scaling system, which will prevent further deforestation, degradation, and the collapse of the Amazon in order to fight climate change effectively on a large scale. The company has acquired over 2,662 acres (10.78 square kilometers) of endangered rainforest since the company was founded in May 2021.
The acquisition of this Amazonia rainforest real estate in the Sarayacu district of Peru will increase efforts to preserve rainforests by utilizing blockchain technology via NFTs (Non-fungible tokens). This gives organizations and consumers anywhere on the planet the opportunity to make a direct impact on the endangered ecosystem, reduce or offset their carbon footprint, and achieve specific SDG goals (Sustainable Development Goals). All with a straightforward purchase of its tokens, in complete transparency, and with ample proof of the positive impact at their fingertips.
The preserved rainforest area can now be customized by business clients using FUND THE PLANET. This can be done through over-the-counter transactions by contacting FUND THE PLANET directly through the company’s website or other preferred payment channels. For individuals who cannot use cryptocurrencies, FUND THE PLANET now offers wire transfers and other payment methods.
The proceeds from the sale of the rainforest token go toward the transparent method of preserving more rainforest and further sustainable investment. This initiative is geared toward the local communities, with the goal of impacting the local economy by creating job opportunities, rainforest ecotourism, and more. These projects are intended to discourage deforestation while also providing a sustainable alternative to the local community and incentivize everyone to protect their precious natural capital and fight against climate change.
FUND THE PLANET has also launched the Rainforest Explorer alongside the Rainforest Tokens, a virtual interactive interface that shows the rainforest being preserved. It is open for the public to track the claimed impact of cooperative and individual token holders. It is a world map that contains ecological data such as carbon sequestered, freshwater produced, area protected by tokens, and a multitude of other important specifications about the rainforest parcel being conserved. This interface contains media including preservation work, property condition, and the FUND THE PLANET team’s groundwork while tracking subsequent progress as transparently as possible for individuals to follow up on. Rainforest Token holders can create a public, shareable, profile in the Rainforest Explorer to prove and display their positive impact.
In the coming years, FUND THE PLANET will work to improve its position as a leading impact company that specializes in rainforest preservation. Offering people and organizations around the world the opportunity to reduce their carbon and ecological footprint sustainably and have a direct stake in protecting endangered rainforest ecosystems. Regions with a history of heavy industrialization and pollution, such as Europe and the United States, are currently FUND THE PLANET’s target audience.
